  • Ryan Zinke was sworn in as the 52nd Secretary of the Interior on March 1, 2017.
A fifth-generation Montanan and former U.S. Navy SEAL Commander, Ryan Zinke built one of the strongest track records in the 114th Congress on championing sportsmen’s access, conservation, regulatory relief, forest manage- ment, responsible energy development, and smart management of federal lands.
“As a former Navy SEAL, Ryan has incredible leadership skills and an attitude of doing whatever it takes to win,” Pres- ident Donald Trump said in nominating the former congressman, who built an impressive portfolio on Interior issues
ranging from federal mineral leases to tribal affairs to public lands conservation.

  • Phil Murphy, as he says, “grew up in a family that was middle class on a good day.” That has shaped Phil’s values, his priorities, and the kind of governor he will be.
Religion, basic values, work ethic, education, and civic awareness were pillars of family life. His father never grad- uated from high school, his mother worked as a secretary; they inspired Phil and his three siblings to pursue their educations and be active participants in civic life.
Phil put himself through Harvard on loans and part-time jobs. After earning a graduate degree at the Wharton
School at the University of Pennsylvania, he started his career at the bottom, working his way up to help lead a major international business by learning how economies grow and create jobs.
